Jason Yaeger, Director of Operations at Online Tech, explains how data security changes for those hosted in the private or public cloud.
Mike Klein, COO of Online Tech, explains about how private cloud computing changes the game when it comes to disaster recovery possibilities.
Because the public cloud can offer tiny compute slices that are required to run a web server and rarely use the entire computing platform of a hardware-based server, the public cloud can offer a very cost effective solution for stand-alone web hosting.
Private cloud has some advantages compared to the public cloud because the I/O can be shared across hundreds of servers and is typically run on lower cost, low speed storage, and private cloud hosting offers an environment where the entire solution can be optimized to the application requirements.
Success is defined as meeting a specified objective. Common objectives are usually: elasticity; flexibility; increased pace and lower TCO. These requirements are in addition to the “must haves” like security and up-time for any production environment.
Data security is the leading concern for IT professionals when it comes to cloud computing. The public cloud may not be equipped to address the security and privacy needs of data-sensitive organizations. Because public cloud services offer server instances for many clients on the same hardware, you may have very little control over where your data lives.
SaaS has many advantages over the traditional software delivery model. The recurring revenue stream, simpler maintenance and application updates, and the lower cost of delivery and distribution are especially attractive for both the application provider and the end users.
Private cloud computing offers a number of significant advantages – including lower costs, faster server deployments, and higher levels of resiliency. What is often overlooked is how the Private Cloud can dramatically change the game for IT disaster recovery in terms of significantly lower costs, faster recovery times, and enhanced testability.
A private cloud needs specialized IT technical expertise to not only build the infrastructure but to maintain and manage it as well as careful a cost/benefit analysis to size and grow your cloud with your company. While the private cloud eases concerns of data security and regulatory compliancy that might come with the public cloud, a lot of planning goes into switching to a private cloud.
Once a decision is made to go with a private cloud computing solution, the next decision is whether to outsource with private cloud hosting, or to develop and manage the private cloud internally. The private cloud hosting decision is much like any managed server hosting decision. So what are the trade-offs between private cloud hosting and building an internal private cloud?
